    Foundation strategies:
    1. Organization ( time blocking)
    2. Excercise
    Targeted Strategies:
    1. Deep breathing
    2. Mindful observation of bodily responses (when overwhelmed by emotions)(curiosity)
    3. Confident self talk
    4. Taking it as a challenge or one on one fight with task.
    5. Breaking down into simple smaller steps (one step I can take today to come close to goal)👍

  3. cake on April 21, 2021 at 5:07 pm

    nowadays i feel like i cant even relax or have fun without suddenly feeling so guilty. long school hours, millions of assignments and so on.
    i feel really pressured and feel as if my whole life just depends on school and im not allowed to relax, not to forget how the teacher humiliates and embarrasses me it gives me so much anxiety thats why sometimes i’ll drop out on classes. my grades have been going downhill and it doesnt even feel like school is for learning??? when even was it?
    in short i feel miserable and overwhelmed.

  12. Mehdi Ouabas on April 21, 2021 at 5:22 pm

    I am going to share something that worked for me,Everytime I révise or prépare myself for a test or something,I always see it as if it is a story,and What I mean is that I Think to myself that I need to train to prépare for the battle ahead,I know it sounds stupide but when I was using it nothing else worked,using this technique helped me make the situation Fun and so removed a lot of the stress,I also was trying that mindful approche and it has worked when I had just taken a surgery,Hope this helps

  17. Irl Dean Cobias on April 21, 2021 at 5:27 pm

    dr jubbal: if you have enrolled in 4 classes, it can easily get overwhelming.
    me with 10 classes in a 3-month semester: no wonder I have been feeling stressed out!

  18. •Kokichi Owo on April 21, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    I have been focusing on ELA I forgot all about my other classes now I’m behind and I’m really struggling with school and failing,WHY CANT IT BE MONDAY TODAY

  19. Teapartlytime on April 21, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    I use to think that being stress wasn’t that bad, but now that I have it, it feels like hell. I litterly wish this whole pandemic wouldn’t have happened

  20. blackbat121 on April 21, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    Whos watching this because your teacher said it to watch it important so that you can answer the question in your module 😀

  24. Siddharth Vemuri on April 21, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    I always used to look to the future as stress-free. Now I know that no matter how old I get, I will never escape the devil that is stress

  25. Edixoru on April 21, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    There’s so much things my school “Needs” me to do, Is everything that I learn really necessary in the future? Like to much stress is entering me, Especially for my parents forcing me to do it. Do everything I learn in school really necessary? By dividing decimals or how to make a circuit? There’s to much things in my situation. I hope God helps me sleep tonight.

  26. ꧁LILI LISA꧂ on April 21, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    ;-; I’m only stressed because I didn’t do the whole entire lesson on English and I have homework that I don’t even know what to do with it-

    I’m going to fAiLlLllL

  27. JINNI 진니 on April 21, 2021 at 5:36 pm

  28. Estela Vilenčikaitė on April 21, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    I’m in middle school and it’s already hard. I have moved to a new school, I’ve been there for about 7 months and I already want to give up (it got to the point where I dont want to live anymore), it’s not that its hard, it’s just too much work, teachers expect too much from us. WE ARE KIDS.

  29. Yusef Amul on April 21, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    "How to relieve stress?"
    Me: easy

    Also me: just end school

  30. ichika yua on April 21, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    ive never felt suicidal up until online school came up.

  31. Alluka Zoldyck .-. on April 21, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    POV:Watching this while having a mental breakdown

  32. Tiger EXO on April 21, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    U know…it’s unfair for us students that those teachers thought online classes are easier since we have open book test so they added 2 times more difficulty level in exams and double or even tripled the workload in assignments. Dude….online classes are even worse, more stressful while we are combatting coronavirus.

  33. Sabina's Channel on April 21, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    The answer is simple: Don’t be lazzy anymore. You can thank me later 🙂

  34. V G on April 21, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    I’m here because of organic chemistry 😭

  35. Kavita Kumari on April 21, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    I always tried but still results came 0 , finally I decided that stress will never ever gone in my mind nd committed suicide also even five times but every time I saved why I don’t know, I can’t live with stress. Live with stress it’means I die every day.

  36. Cqtherine W. on April 21, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    My biggest fear is the due date

  37. Major Tom on April 21, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    Thank you

  38. Jilian Agne on April 21, 2021 at 5:47 pm

    Not me searching for this while studying and my sisters are blasting music, they’re such inconsiderate brats

  39. Andy Mongcog on April 21, 2021 at 5:47 pm

  40. Super Koopa plush bros on April 21, 2021 at 5:48 pm

  41. Rat Mouse on April 21, 2021 at 5:48 pm

    my school only cares about scores. not learning or wellbeing. only remembering. all that work to remember so they get can yet another 90% average on their score.

  42. Petuhls on April 21, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    I’m so damn stressed. English literally sucks, my teacher gives me assignments every day. I literally have a presentation due tomorrow.

  43. UkiPanda on April 21, 2021 at 5:50 pm

  44. Gemma Perez on April 21, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    I can’t stop crying

  45. hawk on April 21, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    I have a lot of overdue test and quizzes, this year is awful.

  46. The Chosen 1 on April 21, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    Does it count as procrastination when I left my assignment to watch this?

  47. Jayani N. on April 21, 2021 at 5:53 pm


  48. Yelena on April 21, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    *_School doesn’t feel like prison. Because SCHOOL IS PRISON_*

  49. #Me ! on April 21, 2021 at 5:55 pm
